An email to Obama

I am a Detroit Public School teacher and a DFT member. Thousands of us gave time and money to help you get elected. Since then everything we have seen from your administration and Sec. Duncan have felt like attacks on us. On Sunday we will forced to accept a brutal contract that destroys most of the hard earned rights and protections we have fought over 60 years to achieve. We expected support from you, Sir, not a future of charter schools and Teach for America one-year-and-out wonders. You are losing us, as we have already lost you.
